The competition for your grocery dollars is fierce. Whole Foods just opened a new cheaper grocery chain called 365 by Whole Foods...We found the 365 by Whole Foods store brand is consistently cheaper at the 365 store...When we checked out our groceries at Whole Foods 365 the average cost savings was 10 to 15 percent over Whole Foods Market...A scan of each item on Wednesday, April 26 gave us a grand total of $12.19 at HEB. Similar items at 365 by Whole Foods totaled $15.65. A difference of $3.46.

Go to Trader Joes.
Does the new site take your Whole Check or just most of it? : )
Still more than organic products at Trader Joes or Smiths.
In NYC two whole foods stores are within walking distance of a number of colleges and tons of their shoppers are between 18 and 25. Mom and dad can not only pay outrageous tuition, they can pay for expensive whole foods as well.
For those of you not in Texas, HEB is pronounced “aitch eee bee”. It’s the initials of Howard E. Butts, whose mother founded the company well over 100 years ago. A Texas institution.
Whole Foods may be pricy, but its still cheaper than your local health food store, which is why they started up in the first place.
I enjoy the organic produce that costs the sweat of my brow from my backyard garden.
Exercise and really fresh, really local food. What’s not to like!
“shopping at Whole Foods isn’t about buying healthy food but,rather,is a display of affluence.”
I believe it. The few times I dared enter the Whole Foods in Boulder many, many years ago, it was always jammed packed with U of C Perfessors’ wives and very wealthy co-eds. They were all racing around like they were the only ones in the store and clearly felt totally entitled to be there.
I also noticed the supposedly healthy 365 brand was chock full of partially hydrogenated veg oil and all kinds of other additives and crap like you’d find in garden variety junk foods of the era.
“Whole Foods may be pricy, but its still cheaper than your local health food store”
Not where I live. we have two regional “health food” chain stores in my little berg: Sprouts and Natural Grocers. Both are cheaper than Whole Foods, and in some cases both are cheaper than the big chains like Safeway on some products. Not to mention, both Safeway and King Soopers/Kroger now carry an extensive line of organic foods that are very reasonably priced.
It’s that type of competition that’s killing Whole Foods right now. Whole Foods is not doing well right now financially because of extensive competition in organic food retailing.
It's said to be a bit pricey...but then,so is Whole Foods!
My GF works at Wegmans in Westwood, MA
she really likes working there.
always talks about it.
Jim CRAPPER at CNBC keeps touting Whole Foods stock as a buy out target by Kroger and he is saying BUY BUY BUY.......
I never shop there as its too pricey for me.
Did you hear HEB is going to merge with Piggly Wiggly? The new name will be Wiggly Butt.
LOL, very old joke.
Here I thought that HEB was a Kosher meat market.
If you are going to buy food go to HEB. If you are going to buy food plus paper towels, etc and food go to Wally World. Least that are are the numbers here in Central Texas.
Went in to the local Whole Foods to buy some paska bread for Easter (yeah - I’m too inept to try to make it). Got behind an old hippie at the checkout who was buying a few organic veggies which, at a normal store, would cost less than 10 bucks. His total was over $30.
What part of Central Texas are you in? I live near Abilene.
